I openly admit it. I cant get this beautiful face out of my head. His "liquid topaz eyes" are smoldering all over the place!! His "marble skin" is cold and hard and when he steps out into the sun...celestial being. Except of course for the fact that he's a vampire and has no soul and will quite possibly be damned to Hell if he were to ever die. Oh Edward I love you so, maybe more than Bella. Well, maybe not, but still A LOT!! More than I should. This actor is named Robert Pattinson and he also played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter. I always knew I liked him.
It's seriously funny that I'm even writing this post because for 2 years I happily passed on reading these books. I felt that they would be immature and trite. I always kind of grimaced whenever anyone would start gushing over them because it all just seemed so overly ridiculous. I decided to read them so that I could judge them according to my own opinions. To my slight dismay and complete and total embarrassment, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BOOKS! The writing is not great in my opinion. Stephenie Meyers tends to use a lot of the same words and phrases to describe her story. It gets a little old. For example, "liquid topaz eyes", "cold marble skin", Bella only ever seems to "mutter" or "murmur" her words. It got a little boring in that regard but the story itself is addicting. The characters are awesome. The books are fast paced and easy to read and I just love them. That's all there is to it.
I read the first three books in 3 weeks and I am about 140 pages into Breaking Dawn. I'm torn. I want to read it slowly to draw out the time I have left with Edward. On the other hand I want to finish it already so that I can have my life back!! Either way, life's about to get so good.
